Mastermind it is a collection of people that help each other to solve their problems and reach their goals, whatever they may be. It supports mutual growth and improvement.


- a new brand,

- new business,

- product or service

but also for people who are facing a change in their lives and don’t want to do it alone.

Whenever you’re unsure about the way forward, a mastermind can provide effective methods for solving complex problems that otherwise may appear unsolvable.

The Ordinary Guru is much more than this. As facilitators, we make use of our experience and combine our best practices to create optimal circumstances for collaborative work and creative flow. We combine tools from methods of defining and solving problems, among others: design thinking, dragon dreaming, theory U, action learning. We use tools of constructive communication based on NVC, but also practices to get, give and encourage guidance and feedback - radical candor and methods supporting the decision making process - convergent facilitation.

In this workshop participants will discover and experience why and how

a mastermind group is effective in:

- solving problems,

- developing new ideas,

- providing insights for leveling up faster in your business.
